Skincare | Glowing Skin with Sand&Sky

 

sand&sky skincare review(1)

This brand overview has been on my to do list for the longest time but with up to 40% off on the Sand&Sky website for the Black Friday weekend there is no time like the present! Sand&Sky are an instantly recognisable (just look at that packaging!) Australian cruelty free, vegan brand founded by twin sisters Emily and Sarah Hamilton. Using Aussie botanicals in their products, they are committed to responsible sourcing and recyclable packaging! There are three ‘lines’ if you will – Australian Pink Clay to detoxify, Australian Emu Apple to brighten and Tasmanian Spring Water to hydrate – can you tell they are a proud A-Beauty brand yet?! I have four of their products here from each of the lines that I’ve been using for quite a while now and I honestly couldn’t recommend them more!

The Sand&Sky Enzyme Powder Polish RRP £44.90* is a beautifully gentle exfoliator that was even suitable for me when I was on Roaccutane and couldn’t use anything too harsh! The powder is ultra-fine, full of antioxidants and, on contact with water, it turns into a pink foam! It doesn’t feel gritty but my skin always looks smoother, more even and brighter after use and never looks red or feels tight or dry! It is similar to Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and Good Molecules Pineappple Exfoliating Powder but this is the gentlest of the three though no less effective! It also contains Vitamin C and Australian super berries to nourish and hydrate. I use this a couple of times a week and you only need about a coin size amount so this tub has lasted me forever and I am only about half way through! I spoke about it more in this Five Things I’m Loving post here!

sand&sky australian emu apple dreamy glow drops review

Next up, we have the Australian Emu Apple Dreamy Glow Drops RRP £50.90* which is definitely one of their most famous products! It’s a really unique bi-phase serum that you shake to activate and the result is hydrated, brighter skin! The formula feels very lightweight though it is oily and I’m not sure how I wouldn’t have got on with this if my skin was still oily/combo but it’s more on the normal/dry side now and drinks this up! It contains 5 types of Hyaluronic acid, Australia Emu Apple - an antioxidant to combat ageing, boost brightness and add glow, Kakadu Plum, a source of Vitamin C to target pigmentation and hemi-squalane to lock in moisture. It really is a dreamy formula and my skin looks more even and bright and glowy with use! Despite the lightly oily formula this works well with my other skin products and makeup and never makes it separate or pill! 

 

sand&sky australian pink clay porefining mask review

Another insta fave is the Sand&Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Mask RRP £36.90* (for 60g – mine is 30g) and for good reason! It’s a detoxifying face mask, using Australian Pink Clay to draw impurities, toxins, and pollutants out of the skin. This works to tighten pores, tackle pigmentation and even skin tone and as well as pink clay it contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C again in the form of Kakadu Plum and Pomegranate to act as an antioxidant. You only need to leave it on for 10 minutes to get the benefits and the tingle is real with this! My skin feels smoother and tighter (but not dry), pores look smaller and my skin looks brighter overall. Love the dinky little brush that comes with it too! Read more in this Five More Facemasks post!

Finally, the newest product to my stash – the Tasmanian Spring Water Hydration Boost Cream RRP £44.90*. This is a hydrating gel-cream containing, you guessed it, Tasmanian Spring Water to strengthen as well as hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture, fermented sea kelp to smooth and target fine lines and red seaweed extract to prevent dehydration. The texture makes it feel both lightweight and rich at the same time and it immediately feels cooling and soothing. It has become my go to night cream and I wake up to plump, hydrated skin and I love the subtle marshmallow-y scent! I find the formula a little too much sometimes during the day, depending on what other serums/SPF or makeup I use on occasion it pills slightly along my hairline and with other products which is a pet peeve of mine but I don’t have this issue at night so that’s my preferred time to use it!

I also have to take a moment to mention the packaging again – I am obsessed with how bright and weighty it is! It’s so eye-catching and luxurious feeling and the brand is almost 100% recyclable (the aluminium droppers in the serums are the only part that isn’t!). 

 

Like I said at the start of the post, there are hefty discounts across the website ending today (28th November - sorry if you are reading later than that!)! As well having their own website, Sand&Sky are also available from Cult Beauty, ASOS and BeautyBay! Have you tried anything yet? Let me know your thoughts!

  10. I've not heard of this brand before! I'm not a big fan of clay masks as they make my skin so incredibly dry, but that Hydration Boost Cream sounds right up my street. xx
